The Bellfuries' European tour hits NL next week15-07-2016
The Bellfuries’ debut on Hi-Style Records, "Workingman’s Bellfuries", hoists the band to new heights, drawing upon a deep well of musical styles. Early country, rockabilly and 80’s pop sounds are woven throughout eleven tracks, with Joey Simeone’s soaring lead vocals reminding listeners that this record isn’t some dusty artifact plucked from the archives.
With razor-sharp, groove-oriented production from label owner and acclaimed producer Jimmy Sutton, "Workingman’s Bellfuries" is a refreshing iteration of The Bellfuries’ sound; tinkling boogie piano, driving double bass rhythms and innovative-meets-traditional rockabilly guitar licks make the album an easy fit for a juke-joint dance floor. But it is Simeone’s vivid songwriting--his exploration of the complexities of love and loss-- that makes "Workingman’s Bellfuries" instantly relatable to every listener. Don’t let its mid-century aesthetics fool you; "Workingman’s Bellfuries" is a vibrant contemporary rock and roll record.
The Bellfuries are touring NL at the end of this month:
22-JUL: Leiden @ Q-Bus
23-JUL: Utrecht @ dBs
24-JUL: Lichtenvoorde @ Zwarte Cross
